An up-and-coming Brooklyn "clocker" (an all-hours crack cocaine dealer) has his existence turned upside down when his law-abiding brother takes the rap for the murder of a rival dealer. A gritty, realistic adaptation of Richard Price's best-selling novel, the film is shot in provocative, evocative style by Spike Lee, starring Delroy Lindo, Harvey Keitel, Isaiah Washington, and Mekhi Phifer.
